We Are Wiggly Tails

Uniting Loving Animals & Forever Families

Our Story

Wiggly Tails Dog Rescue is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) dog rescue in Eugene, Oregon. We are volunteer-driven and foster-based. We rescue dogs from high-kill shelters in California and accept local owner-surrendered dogs. Our focus is on small dogs and puppies.

Each dog we rescue is evaluated, provided with needed veterinary care (including spay/neuter and vaccinations), and then placed in a foster home. We hold adoption events at local pet stores several times a month to find forever homes for the dogs.

Our model is foster-to-adopt, so we can ensure that each dog ends up in the right home.
